Do you think Sushi is becoming more and more popular in the UK?
Definitely. I’ve been living in the UK nearly 30 years but when I just moved over here from Tokyo back in the 90s, sushi was still very expensive so only certain people could afford to eat it. Now it’s not expensive at all any more and has also been recognised as one of the healthiest foods in the world.
